Therese's correspondence LT 204 – To Mother Agnes of Jesus – December 18, 1896

MARTIN Thérèse, Sister Thérèse of the Child Jesus
MARTIN Pauline, Mother Agnes of Jesus


18 December 96

                The Blessed Virgin is so happy to have a little donkey and a little maid that she makes them run from right to left for her pleasure, so is it not surprising that the little Mother sometimes falls...
                Yes, but when little Jesus is grown up, when he no longer needs to learn the "little trade of the shop", he will prepare a little place for the little Mother in his kingdom which is not of this world and then in turn “He will come and go to serve her”. More than one small nose drawn by the little Mother will be obliged to get up to look at the one who had no other ambition than to be the donkey of little Jesus.
